, which also means “We Like It!”
in Italian, is the latest addition to the slew of ice cream parlours here. If the moniker does not ring a bell, it is probably because this flagship outlet is the first in Asia
yet, and 5th in the entire Universe. Thanks to the pair of sisters, Peggy and Claudia, who brought in the franchise, we now fancy 18 crowd-pleasing flavours freshly made everyday
in their on-site kitchen; All ingredients are also air-flown from Italy. Good news: Gelato uses fresh milk
instead of cream, so you calorie-counters could go ahead with your guilty pleasure.
It is totally understandable to stop and stare at this 3-week-old Italian delicatessen, especially when their brightly-lit interior
is so attention-seeking. Hygiene is prominently emphasized in this cafe, which accounts for the clean and sleek feel it gives off. Also, do expect friendly and affable service
in this white and turquoise 20-odd seater.
We say throw away all inhibitions and dig in mindlessly as discipline would be an epic fail.WE ORDERED:1.Dark choc crunch/ Vanilla whisky/ Tiramisu, 5.4(medio):
The 85% Dark Chocolate Crunch
was superbly intense and potent, so we were not surprised it was a hot-seller. The bitter-sweet concoction was heavenly and it left us yearning more of that endorphin rush. The Vanilla Whisky
smacked us hard with the booze, and followed by a mild vanilla aftertaste behind the intoxication. So kids watch out! Do not be fooled by the alcoholic variant of vanilla. Last but not least, the Tiramisu
won us over with chunks of alcohol-imbued sponge embedded within, adding extra flavours and texture to the coffee-based ice-cream.2. Waffles + Donatella + Crunchy brownie toppings, 8.9:
The Donatella + Crunchy brownie combination was pure sin made in heaven. Donatella
is Ci Gusta!’s rendition of Nutella-flavoured ice cream and together with the diet-killing dried brownie bits swathed over it, we experienced a flavour overload. Do not be surprised if this harmony reminds you of Ferrero Rocher. The waffle, on the other hand, was crisp on the surface and soft at heart, plus the light fragrance of the batter left us begging for seconds.
Warning: Sharing is caring does not apply here.
We are now blessed with genuine and unpretentiously good Italian gelato besides the hotdogs from Ikea. Prices can be a little cheeky, but that is in exchange for the finest quality of desserts. Also, do check out their yogurt and soups as well. Leave the gymming till another day.
